A Righteous Judgment
Another case in which medical legislation has proved ineffective to prevent the practice of Christian Science is recorded in the following news item copied from The Cincinnati Enquirer:—
"Sandusky, Ohio, April 18.—Judge Charles S. Reed, in a decision rendered to-day, held the state medical registration law unconstitutional on the ground that it is class legislation, and discharged Oliver W. Marble, who had been convicted of practising without a license. Marble is a Christian Scientist. The coroner had caused his arrest for treating a man named Christopher Hehil and charging a regular fee.
"Judge Reed held that the medical registration and license law recognized none but practitioners of medicine and osteopathy and required Christian Scientists to pass an examination in materia medica, when, as a matter of fact, they used no medicine, but depended entirely upon prayers to God for healing. This, he said, was class distinction, and he declared that the legislature should recognize any and all kinds of healing. The case will be taken by the State to the Supreme Court."
